doorn "My whole life' means: from my 15th. I hope Richard will remain in his nowadays condition until his 100th! We visited his concert in Amsterdam (`Melkweg') and were as thrilled as at last year's Cropredy Festival. Hope he'll be there again at every Fairport-lustrum. Goodbye"
Victoria "Awestruck and moved by RTs guitar expertise and lyrics, and how they both intertwine to tell stories that I seem to easily relate to (scarey)."

Tasmania My partner saw Richard on a show on SBS at a folk festival somewhere in America we just loved his music
Virginia "Got my tickets for the Birchmere several weeks ago...but when is Richard going to play at the Wolf Trap?! Please, please, please?"
British Columbia "When's your next BC gig, Richard? How 'bout a small venue accoustic tour? I'll let you stay at my house;-)"
Pennsylvania "saw you at kimmel center , in philadelphia, 4th row. Seemed like you were not permitted to play any longer but you did want to?"
New Brunswick Probably been listening more than 30 years starting with Fairport. Its amazing to still be so fresh after so long. Keep it up!
Texas Please come to Texas (Dallas)!
California "I recently purchased ""Ducknapped"" and ""Two Letter Words"" from the Beesweb and Mr. Thompson should consider recording all of his albums live. I have seen him 3 time and the studio records have never captured the solos like these live records. I absolutely love the solo on ""Mascara Tears"" and Dave Mattacks is also brilliant on that track. ""I Ride in Your Slipstream"" is also a standout on the live album. Along with ""Old Kit Bag"", these are the best CD's I have purchased this year. If I ever make it to heaven, I hope Richard Thompson's music is piped in."
Washington I just had to write a note. I was listening to your music this morning on my way to work and I just wanted to thank you for being so good; it's a joy to listen to your guitar. Thanks for coming to Spokane this year; hopefully you'll be able to come again soon.

Illinois "So thankful that there is a Richard Thompson. His music has consumed alot of air space in my life. I love it. Met him in Califonia while on vacation with my sister. He was very pleasant and good sense of humor. Makes you like him even more. My sister and I try to make all of his concerts when he comes to Chicago. Fun. Fun. Say hi to him for us please? Hee! Hee!"

California "I FINALLY got to see & hear Richard this past Sunday evening at the Celtic Festival in Grass Valley - I spent the whole time watching his fingers! I've been playing guitar - both electric & acoustic - for more than 35 years, and Richard is the finest guitarist I've ever seen! I STILL can't figure out some of the stuff he does! Thanks, Richard, for a great show!"

New York "I work in the car audio marketing department at JBL. I'm putting together a CD for use as a tool in tuning high-end car audio systems and would like to use a song or two (acoustic) from Richard's body of work. I noticed that one of his quotes is that everything sounds better in the car. it's true. Please tell me how i might get permission to use a song or two on this CD and who I must contact about payment and arrangements for licensing. Thanks!"

Middlesex "I first got into Richards music when 'Amnesia' was released and I instantly fell in love with his raw emotional style. I love any music with passion and Richard is probably the only artist I have come across who can make me laugh, weep and shiver within the space of one album, or even one song. Long may he play!"

cheshire What is the new guitar he is playing. Was the Strat retired (because it did get 7 bells knocked out of it)
"Tue Oct 14, 2003"
Oregon "I mostly missed Richard in Fairport convention though liked related artists like Incredible String Band and Nick Drake. Have his first solo record so he will have to shake my hand some day. No idea why all gives Daring Adventures three stars or some such. Jennie My Love and others are terrific. I like jazz and Richard is one of the few ""rock"" guitarists who doesn't shoot the works in the first messure. He builds a solo and that is such a pleasure. Look forward to ordering the ""More Guitar"" and others. Salute. I am working on the mandolin and hope to see Richard play one live some time."
